Our Little Friends

video

One of our greatest joys in Honduras has been watching our little monkey friends bounce and play at our kitchen window. We hope you enjoy them too. :) (had trouble getting our best video to upload. sorry)


Our curious but skiddish little white faced monkeys love to make faces at their reflections in the window and throw avocados down the tin roof.




Howler Monkeys
generally sit in the palm trees in front of our house. They are pretty passive towards humans and enjoy eating leaves and "scolding" cars that drive by.

Cowboy Day



The kids in the 4th and 5th grade history class recently had a fun time learning how to use a lariat as a part of our study on cowboys and the Wild West. Our own resident cowboy from Montana, Josh Browning, impressed us with his lasso!

Pray for Bob Lillard!


Our friend and nextdoor neighbor, Bob Lillard, remains in a coma here at Hospital Loma de Luz following a sudden illness in early January. This picture of Bob and his precious wife, Zina, was taken at Christmas.

Friends from afar


The girls' good friend from Costa Rica, Katy, came to visit over Holy Week. They had a great time and it was hard to say goodbye again!

An Awesome Visit


We thoroughly enjoyed having our good friends, Jeanne, Katie, Corey and Lindy McCullough, come and visit for a little over 2 weeks in February. They enjoyed sightseeing, and just generally hanging out here with us and the monkeys!

Living History Day







Living History Day for the home school co-op was on Saturday, May 5th. The day was filled with typical early Amerian festivities, a tour of the 13 original colonies (conducted through the kids booths and displays), demonstrations of colonial arts and crafts (such as candle-dipping, braiding rugs, sewing samplers, block-printing, tinsmithing, handmade dolls, etc) and lots of authentic Colonial food (including gruel, cornbread, and Brunswick stew). All this was done in authentic colonial dress, with kids and adults participating. The evening culminated with a wonderful program in which the kids re-enacted important events leading up to and during the American Revolution and dramatically portrayed famous people, gave speeches, and recited poems. Shelby even played the snare drum...which added to the Revolutionary feel of the evening. It was quite a day!! What a wonderful grand finale to a great first year with the home school co-op here in Honduras!
